Shower handle came off in hand first night… no one told us there would be no making up of rooms and clean towels we had to get ourselves Poor hotel

Booked this hotel last minute because my Florida vacation was cancelled due to the hurricane. I’m very happy we booked here! The staff was nice and very accommodating. The room was comfortable and we loved the rooftop pool and terrace! Offsite parking was less than a block away and everything was within walking distance. Will definitely book again when in the area.

Hotel staff was very helpful and courteous. Also Hotel location is great.

Staff was friendly and nice. Room was clean but not enough towels. No restaurant. 1st hotel I ever been at that doesn’t have a coffee maker in the room.

Fantastic location to the heart of Chicago near fine dining, the river, shopping ,and notable Chicago mainstays.

It said that they had parking which they didn’t we had to park in someone else garage it cost us 50 to park our car for the weekend the blankets on the bed were disgusting and they had said they were booked on reservations for the pool so we couldn’t swim but many trips to the terrace we seen no one in the pool

The hotel and view especially the jetted hot tub

Loved the location. Nice hotel. Great place to stay. Enjoyed myself.

Hotel Staff is incredible, helpful, accomodating, excellent customer service, I will definitely go back to the same hotel, which by the way is in a top-notch location.

All of the little details were what made this hotel great... The shower head is tall, the water pressure is strong, the curtains are truly room darkening, etc. It was also clean and well maintained and the decor was beautiful (just as pictured). Check in was easy, staff were nice. No complaints!

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Is our favorite on the city of Chicago

Absolutely loved my stay here !! Although during the pandemic it was limited access to many of the facility amenities. The staff made the stay worth my while . The view and location was awesome .

Excellent staff and very friendly! The room was big and clean.

Even with the city being under curfew, the receptionist was very understanding and welcoming and gave us anything that was available with a request

it was okay, we stayed during the pandemic and it was very expensive for the service and 0 amenities that were provided, I mean there wasn't even ice..

I didn’t like homeless people outside of hotel. Every time I got out of the cab I would get harassed for money.

We enjoyed all the extras that made our stay special and set this hotel apart, everything was great!
